Who'd be a copper?: Thirty Years a Frontline Cop

Jonathan Nicholas


Who'd be a copper? follows Jonathan Nicholas in his transition from a long-haired international traveler to turning into one in all 'Thatcher's army' at the wooden traces of the 1984 miner's dispute and past. His first years within the police have been frequently chaotic and tough, and he used to be just about sacked for now not prosecuting adequate humans. operating on the sharp finish of inner-city policing for the full thirty years, Jonathan observed how politics interfered with the activity; from the massaging of crime figures to non-public petty squabbles with senior officials.

His final ten years have been the oddest, from being the simplest cop within the strength to continually being instructed that he confronted dismissal. This surprising precise tale comes from deep within the center of British inner-city policing and is a revealing perception into what lifestyles is actually like for a police officer, amid expanding finances cuts, weird and wonderful domestic place of work rules and stifling political correctness.

"I can write what i love, no matter if it brings the police carrier into disrepute, simply because I don't paintings for them anymore!" says Jonathan Nicholas. Who'd be a copper? is a different perception into glossy policing that would entice lovers of autobiographies, plus these attracted to seeing what particularly occurs backstage of the united kingdom police.
